Frisée Salad with Cherries & Blue Cheese
ACTIVE: 35 minutes TOTAL: 35 minutes
Sweet cherries, earthy blue cheese and salty prosciutto balance each bite in this healthy
side salad recipe. If you can’t find frisée, curly endive is a good alternative.
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil plus 2 tablespoons, divided
4 thin slices prosciutto
2 cups sweet cherries, pitted and halved, divided
2 tablespoons raspberry vinegar
1 tablespoon chopped shallot
1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
8 cups torn frisée or curly endive
1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
1. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add prosciutto
and cook, turning once or twice, until crispy, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Break each slice into 3 “crisps.”
2. Place the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, 1/2 cup cherries, vinegar, shallot, tarragon, sugar
and salt in a blender; puree until smooth.
3. Toss frisée (or endive) in a large bowl with the remaining cherries and the dressing.
Divide the salad among 6 plates. Top each salad with a scant 1 tablespoon blue cheese
and 2 prosciutto crisps.
